Husky Energy profit halves on lower refining margins

Oct 24 (Reuters) - Husky Energy Inc HSE.TO reported a 50% drop in quarterly profit on Thursday, as the company's refining margins came under pressure from higher Canadian crude prices fueled by Alberta's mandatory production curbs.

The Calgary-based company's average quarterly production fell to 294,800 barrels of oil equivalents a day (boepd) from 296,700 boepd.
